We have stated that feminism does not cover a homogeneous group. Therefore, it is inevitable to face the social movements that have different feminist tendencies in the historical process, especially in the 70's. Especially the problems and interests of proletarian women and bourgeois women are different from each other, which is the first example of the formation of different feminist orientations. According to proletarian women, advocates of women's rights are only concerned with the interests of bourgeois society.
Basically, implying that they were no good. It was the right motivation to organize and move forward to make a difference to make a change. The Guerilla Girl wanted to change the general assumption that no woman or person of color had talent to make it to mainstream as history books. It was just unacceptable because a story about history must include everyone a part of it. It was obviously a misrepresentation of women and minorities in the world.
Throughout American history, women have requested and demanded to achieve recognition for having the same legitimacy as men. Naturally born rights, such as access to equal education, and the right to speak out in public were denied to females. Perhaps, the most powerful right they were denied was the right to vote. Though women were considered inferior and given limited roles in society, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Carry Nation played a crucial role in the movement for women’s rights. Women did not achieve this right immediately, but that did not stop them from fighting.
. Women are currently at a disadvantaged with respect to rights, compared with men such as respect and such conditions According to dictionary.com Feminism can be defined as a doctrine or movement that advocates equal rights for women. Feminism is both an intellectual commitment and a political movement that seeks justice for women and targets the end of sexism in all forms. However, there are many different kinds of feminism such as radical feminism, socialist feminism, cultural feminism, and liberal feminism.
Maybe people care a lot about what other people think; or, maybe they just do not care at all. Some people live by what other people want or think is “normal.” Other people live the way they want to live and do not care about the things other people want them to be. Women tend to struggle with this alot. Stereotypes, inequalities, and politics were not things women in the 1930s wanted to live by; although, they managed to make it better for themselves through political action over time.
Woman suffrage was a rough time for woman. They proved in many ways, to men and the government, that they were capable of having the responsibility to vote. Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
As mentioned before women’s suffrage consisted on the women that were not being accepted in society and in daily activities, such as fighting for right to vote, access to high education, being excluded from jobs, equal payment opportunities, and sports activities. This was the most controversial women’s rights issue of the early twentieth centuries. Thanks to feminist women back to this era now females have more opportunities and are living with almost equal rights. Women believed that if they were able to vote, they would get the proper representation in government. By getting representation on government, would it help them to solve other issues regarding women’s
Stanton’s article is foundational because it uses the Declaration of Independence to point out that everyone should be entitled to the same rights. Stanton did this by listing ways that women were being oppressed, which showed that women weren’t being afforded equal rights even though the Declaration of Independence stated that men and women were equal. The major areas where she believed women were treated unequally were in education, employment and government. Since the 1800s there has been significant strides made towards achieving equality in these three categories, however, a blind eye can’t
Liberal feminists argue that women have the same capacity as men for moral reasoning and work habits, but that patriarchy, particularly the sexist division of labor, has historically denied women the opportunity to express and practice this reasoning. These dynamics serve to shove women into the private sphere of the household and to exclude them from full participation in public life. Hence, gender inequality is a hazard not only to the highly capable, talented and deserving women but also to the economy as a whole. Both awareness of the existing gender inequality and implementation of policies that address gender inequities need to be strengthened. Reducing the amount of time women spend on unpaid work is also essential.
The feminist is exposed to rebuild the culturally learned accepted behavior and make attempt against the stigmatize attached to the of disapproval of the unfeminine behavior. The lack of uniformity of the gender construction across the cultures shows its chance for the change. Here the feminist more concerned about the harm done by the “natural” to the women in her everyday life. As per one school of thought, the “women can be different, but equal.”
The reason behind its length is due to the struggles women were facing at this current time in history. Wollstonecraft had to elaborate on many of her ideas as she had to thoroughly justify herself and thoughts to society because she was a woman. This is unlike the men of the French National Assembly whose statements were more easily accepted. As evident in the “Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens,” the lack of reference to women proved that women were not seen as equal to men. They also were not allowed to participate in government, other authoritative roles, and did not have the same “natural” rights as men.
Major continuities and changes regarding various views of women in the years between 1450 and 1700 include both the continuation of disdain towards women and the emergence of the idea that women are equal to men. Women were often thought to be of less value than men, an idea that originated early in history and progressed throughout this time period. Some men and women began to speak out against inequality and, whether directly or indirectly, influenced new ideas causing others to believe in the power of women. Many views of women in the years between 1450 and 1700 continued to show the age old idea of women being seen as the inferior gender. James Sprenger and Henry Kramer wrote that women are more likely to be attacked by the devil because they are more naive than men (1).
The 1920s represented the post-suffrage era when women made drastic social and cultural changes that affected the American women way of life. Women began to seek more rightsand equal representation through changes in social values. However, women still observed their primary responsibility for caring for the household; and also depended on men for monetary support (Martin, 1926). The essay brings into perspective, various transformations that took place in the 1920s, resulting in the diversion of the traditional norms.
Part of Zemon-Davis and Engel’s differences is the nature of the type of book they wished to write, as well as the time periods of which they wrote. The seventeenth century was not as revolutionary for women as the post-Great Reforms Era of nineteenth-century Russia when everything, for everyone, was changing. “Static” and “value” are by no means mutually exclusive and a picture of the static reality for many women is not unimportant picture to write, especially considering the silence that has been the reality of so much of women’s history. Likewise plotting a narrative to understand philosophic changes in authority and how they affected the populous, especially those on the periphery, is not inherently more valuable. However, the difference
In the United States, Historians and people in the public, look at the American Revolution as the first key step to creating the American Nation. With War came many struggles for families. Men indeed were forced to fight in the war, but what about Women? Along with men, Women were also a major part of the war. To be part of the war, it was not necessary that they had to be fighting.
